I went to see the Constructing Worlds exhibition at the Barbican and it was really excellent. Although I wasn't as impressed with the Gursky's as I thought I might be. Nadav Kader's Yangtze images were amazing, Bernd Becher's Water Towers looked superb displayed in a nice tight grid. It was wonderful to see Stephen Shore's prints too, I have seen them so many times in books and online but nothing compares to seeing them in the flesh. Lots of other highlights too, definitely worth the £12 entrance fee. http://www.barbican.org.uk
